And the Beat Goes On …
Hello all you Vets in the Fight, this is David Miller with your weekly Special Operations Speaks, Vets in the Fight SITREP
“Americans must be right 100% of the time, while Democrats = Communists need only get it right once; the Republic being the prize. “
Over this morning’s 0430 hours second coffee, and assessing where we are post-midterm, even while key election recounts in Florida and Arizona mysteriously keep producing thousands more ballots, seemingly out of thin air, favoring the neo-Marxists running under guise of Democrats. The Democrat voting fraud machine operates at warp speed at times like this. See also the miraculous recount election of Al Franken in Minnesota-stan in 2014.
The outcome of these so-called recounts will impact the composition of the U.S. Senate heavily. Literally hundreds of Swamp Leftist lawyers, hired by Soros et al, are streaming to Florida and Arizona bent not on an honest recount, but on winning at all costs elections by a veritable freak show of neo-Marxist candidates. Will watch with great interest as this saga unfolds.
On an upbeat note, two of our three Vets in the Fight® who made it to the final congressional midterm races were elected to office.
Because of limited resources, we currently confine our financial support to first term veteran candidates. We believe a constant infusion of fresh, eager and talented blood into the Congress is essential to the health of that body. That is especially true given the steadily decreasing military veteran composition of the U.S. Congress, currently at an embarrassing 16% vice more than 75% in the 90s. That ancient body is in desperate need of infusion of duty, honor, country and competence. And the only institutionally-generated source of those qualities today is the U.S. military, and these two elected Vets in the Fight® personify those rare qualities.
Lieutenant Colonel Michael Waltz, a retired U.S. Army Special Forces Lieutenant Colonel won his first campaign for public office in Florida’s 6th Congressional District by a healthy 56 to 43% margin. Waltz served several tours as a Special Forces officer in Afghanistan, and after retiring, was a frequent strategic policy contributor for Fox News.
Lieutenant Commander Dan Crenshaw, a retired U.S. Navy SEAL Lieutenant Commander, won his first campaign in Texas’s 2d Congressional District by a 53 to 45% margin. Crenshaw was the butt of a Saturday Night Live failed humor, when he was mocked for his combat-related disability, and for wearing a patch over the eye lost in an Improvised Explosive Device attack in Afghanistan. It is notable that Commander Crenshaw last that eye in the second of his three tours in combat. Somehow the empty humor by SNL could only address Crenshaw’s injury as having be acquired in QUOTE … War OR SOMETHING.
Queried by Fox News as to how the SNL joke may have backfired in his favor at the polls, Crenshaw conceded that “… it could not have hurt.”
We congratulate each of these men for well-crafted and honorable campaigns, indicators of their potential to lead in the desperately needed problem-solving arena of the Congress. These are the kinds of citizen-warriors that Special Operations Speaks seeks to identify, recruit, finance and support for election, each adaptable and ready to re-introduce duty, honor, country and competence to national office; a legislative compliment to the proven leadership of President Donald J. Trump going into the 2020 general election cycle which, if you didn’t already sense it, began on Wednesday, 7 November 2018.
We are planning to host a distinguished panel on national and grassroots security during the annual International Sniper Competitions, sponsored by the US Army Special Warfare School, at Ft. Bragg, NC in late March 2019. We will need about $14000 for that effort. Looking to the coming year, we are in the early stages of planning for a Vets in the Fight® Candidate Bootcampfor qualified / aspiring Vets who step up to run for elected office. We will need between $25,000 and $30,000 for the Bootcamp. The 2020 GOP convention in Charlotte, NC in June offers the chance for a Vets in the Fight® Vets Vote rally leading to the big Convention with a price tag to be determined as we mature the concept.
